Almost done planning itinerary, would love advice!

koneko | Dec 30, 2009 02:34 PM

I want to thank all the chowhounders here. Thanks to all the great posts, I've been able to compile some info to help plan our itinerary for next month's trip to Tokyo.

We're only there for 2.5 days, so I've been trying to think of the best way to cover as much as possible in a short amount of time. I am trying to pick places close to where I want to shop too!

Here's what I have so far...
We will defn. visit Takashimaya and Isetan Depachika, so if I'm missing something on my list, please let me know.
I would love to add an izakaya to the list... any recs for one in the Shinjuku area?
Any other recs are very much appreciated.

- Katsukura at Takashimaya
- Sushi Dai at Tsukiji
- Hidemi Sugino
- Ginza Mitsukoshi Depachika- Henri Chapentier, Girotti
- Laduree at Ginza Mitsukoshi
- Isetan Depachika for: Pierre Herme, Jean Paul Hevin, Henri Le Roux, Sadaharu Aoki, Pudding d’Or, Ameya Eitero Sweets
- Kujiraya
- Kozue
- Nihonbashi Yukari
- Ichiran Ramen

Also, is Sushi Dai a camera-friendly place? I know some places don't allow photos.

Slightly OT: looking for good knives. Has anyone heard of Kiya knife store in Ginza?

Thanks, and Happy New Year everyone!
